Make a Dedication
December 24, 2017
Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
וַיְהִ֗י אַחֲרֵי֙ הַדְּבָרִ֣ים הָאֵ֔לֶּה וַיֹּ֣אמֶר לְיוֹסֵ֔ף הִנֵּ֥ה אָבִ֖יךָ חֹלֶ֑ה וַיִּקַּ֞ח אֶת־שְׁנֵ֤י בָנָיו֙ עִמּ֔וֹ אֶת־מְנַשֶּׁ֖ה וְאֶת־אֶפְרָֽיִם׃
Some time afterward, Joseph was told, “Your father is ill.” So he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.
Until Yakov’s time, people never got sick but would just sneeze and die.
Yakov prayed to Hashem that people should sense that their life was coming to an end and thereby be able to make their final arrangements.
His prayers were answered and he was the first person to suffer a terminal illness.
(Yalkut chadash, Pirke deRabbi Eliezer)
